I was taking the practical test for the first time having driven on a foreign licence for nearly 15 years. Nick was very pleasant and professional, correcting the bad habits I'd picked up and giving me structured steps to execute the manoeuvres perfectly. Very supportive office too, especially Sue who helped find me earlier dates for my test and rebook it when it was cancelled by the testing centre. Highly recommended!

I have passed my test for the first time on the 30th March with a near clear test sheet, which was amazing thanks to Tunde. She is a brilliant instructor, she is very thorough and patient. Her teaching not only gives you confidence on the road, it makes you fully understand every aspect of the road, from all types of parking, to how to switch lanes, to understanding road markings, to noticing road signs..and many more.. I would definitely recommend Tunde to everyone as I have learnt so much and many thanks for going out of your way for my test day, much appreciated! : )

I had Heidi over quite a long period of time and couldn't recommend her more. She was very good at explaining everything, always patient when I made mistakes and motivating as well. I had a great experience learning to drive with her as she is a lovely lady and I always looked forward to her lessons.

I couldn't thank my driving instructors enough for everything she has done to help me pass my practical this morning. Heidi is the nicest person I have met, she was willing to drop me off anywhere I wanted if i asked her and we had the best time in the car laughing and learning. Thank you much Heidi:) I would definitely recommend this company if you want to learn to drive.

I found Lanes to be easy to work with from booking my initial lesson to scheduling my exam at my preferred location and convenient date. My instructor, Tony, was absolutely brilliant. I had driven before in the U.S. and he helped me correct some bad habits that had developed over the years, so I could be ready for the exam. He was extremely patient and kept me laughing through the lessons. He really put me at ease on test day, and gave me great tips to help me feel confident. I highly recommend the company and this instructor.

As an experienced driver (10 yrs driving abroad) I was taking the UK test for the first time. I had heard the UK test is difficult, so I was quite nervous and unsure if I would pass. But thanks to my instructor Bisi, who patiently pointed out my bad habits, helped to keep me calm on the day of the test, and I passed first time! Bisi is an awesome instructor. Thanks Bisi!

Tunde is a brilliant teacher. I will recommend her to everyone. She is incredibly thorough, nipping any bad habits immediately in the bud, drilling you so things become second nature. She also has an amazing 'can-do' attitude that helps you get over any areas where you lack confidence. I am 41 and was 7 months pregnant when I started and worried I had left it too late to learn how to drive! I passed my test first time 3 days before my due date. PS Also, Tunde is extremely pragmatic in getting you EVERY advantage for your test - helping you choose the right test centre, checking the routes in that area, and so on.

Dear Lanes I am writing to tell you how much I have appreciated Soumia Rachidi who has been my driving instructor. She is such a friendly, compassionate and understanding person but also a calm, sensible, reliable and thorough instructor. You are so lucky to have her as part of the driving school. With best wishes Jessica

Tunde is an excellent teacher. Before she became my instructor I had lost faith in my ability to drive but she gave me loads of confidence and explained things I had previously found terrifying in such a clear way they have become second nature. I passed my test today and will feel confident and safe driving alone thanks to her. She is also a lovely woman. Thanks Tunde!

Tunde is an incredible instructor, I passed 1st time with just 10 hours of lessons. Tunde is patient, she explains things clearly and doesn't waste any time in getting you on the road. I can't recommend her highly enough and I would tell any of my friends/family to learn with her. Her car is also fantastic to drive!

Would endlessly recommend Juliet if you want to learn with a calm, lovely and funny instructor! And her car is great to learn in -very smooth! X

I would highly recommend Heidi as a driving instructor as she is very patient and understanding which was super helpful for when I began driving lessons. She is always very calm and tested and stretched my abilities so I felt confident going into my exam - I passed second time with four minors which is a testament to how well I was taught.

My Driving instructor Tunde was amazing, she was just the perfect instructor that believed in me and understood my strengths and weaknesses.

I started my driving lessons with another school but felt I was being ''slotted in'' at a time convenient to my instructor. I wished to Lanes and Chris Willis became my instructor. He was prompt, reliable and very thorough. I would definitely recommend Chirs Willis from Lanes. I owe my driving to him . Thank you for a life long skill.

My driving Instructor Tunde was honestly amazing! my confidence had depleted after I took and failed my first test with another driving company. (I've had several instructors with different driving agencies and Tunde was the best!) I felt like maybe driving just wasn't for me, that was until I met Tunde. She instilled so much confidence in me. her patience and motivation made me feel at ease and boosted my self-confidence behind the wheel. As a nurse who works ridiculous hours Tunde accommodated my driving lessons at times that suited me without any problem which was very helpful. I highly recommend Tunde as a DI. You will not regret it!

If I could rate my instructor Gerry more than 5 stars I would. I was a very anxious beginner but with Gerry's guidance and patience I have become a confident driver which I never thought possible. Not at any point did I want to change instructors. Gerry really is the best and I will miss him. I am glad I went with Lanes 🙂

I passed my test today and I want to thank Heidi so much for all her support! She was so lovely and patient with me, and was incredibly supportive when I got nervous. She is very experienced and made the lessons really relaxed and enjoyable! I have already recommended her to my friends and family, who I'm sure will learn as much from her as I did! I'd also like to thank Chris who I only had for one lesson, but he was really supportive and encouraging - thank you very much! Thank you so much Heidi, and Lanes! I look forward to seeing you again when I take my Pass Plus. 🙂

Learning to drive with Tunde was actually fun! I had quit several times with other instructors and with Tunde it just clicked and I knew this time I'd pass. As an instructor she is very skilled at making you feel at ease and confident, she sees the humorous side of your mistakes and doesn't make you feel silly for doing silly things. Tunde also bent over backwards to accommodate my hectic schedule and fit lessons in. I strongly recommend her

★★★★★

I started my lessons with lanes (tunde, my instructor) it felt really easy and simple to pick up. They made me feel comfortable and educated me at every step so there were minimum mistakes. I was confident from my very first lesson till the minute i passed. I would definitely recommend the company and my instructor.

My driving instructor was Tunde and I honestly believe without her patience and fantastic teaching skills I would not have passed first time. I had previous lessons with a different driving school and I’ve gone from having migraines before and after lessons because I stressed so much to absolutely enjoying and feeling confident behind the wheel because of Tunde. For any nervous drivers out there Tunde is calm, makes you feel confident to pass and also explains manoeuvres in a way that makes sense! I could not ask for anymore …I’m only sad I won’t have weekly catch ups with her anymore! Thanks Tunde you’re fantastic!

I passed my test on the 2nd attempt and should have passed first time but was careless and nervous. The driving school were very helpful when I first enquired and I soon relaxed and settled down with my instructor Tony. He was a good teacher and enabled me to gain confidence quickly and progress rapidly. Thanks Lanes.

I can honestly say I am very impressed with Lanes School of Driving. I felt I was a nervous learner driver due to experiences with another driving school but my driving instructor was Tunde and just after my first lesson with her, I can honestly say those nerves disappeared. Tunde was very patient, and I felt totally at ease with her and I always looked forward to and enjoyed my lessons with her. I can fully recommend both Lanes as a driving school and Tunde in particular as a driving instructor. I have been complemented on my driving since I have had my car and I put that down to having such a great teacher. Thank you Tunde 🙂

My instructor Tunde was a godsend! I had to pass my test within a very tight time frame due to pregnancy. I've mastered both driving and theory in under 3 months and passed first time right before my daughter was born. I couldn't have done it without Tunde. Would highly recommend!

Just passed first time with Lanes driving school. My instructor was Tony and you really couldn't fault him! After a bad experience with my previous driving school and I was nervous about starting again, but from the very first lesson with Tony I really felt comfortable and he's a brilliant instructor! He's by far the most friendly person and you're able to have a laugh while being taught by the absolute best! Thanks Tony! Love Zippy.

I took a week's intensive course with Steve from 1-5 Feb and passed my test with only 4 minors on the Friday. This is testament to Steve's skills as an instructor. I had a thoroughly enjoyable week learning - Steve was always punctual, very good at explaining concepts/rules, an excellent, gentle and kind teacher and most of all, patient. He identified areas that I was weak at, such as roundabouts, and we drove on so many until I was comfortable and confident. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone else looking to learn to drive. Thank you again.
